Spotlight: Pen/Faulkner

Our giving in the Arts and Humanities includes theater, dance, music, visual arts, film and other multidisciplinary art forms, as well as organizations that promote the humanities. The Foundation examines how access to the Arts and Humanities for diverse populations is created and how unique opportunities are provided for all ages to engage. In addition to more traditional approaches, we believe in the power of the Arts and Humanities to be innovative and create social change. 

Founded by writers in 1980 and named for William Faulkner – who used his Nobel Prize funds to create an award for young writers – the PEN/Faulkner Foundation brings together American writers and readers in a variety of programs that promote a love of literature.
